Independent Court Researchers

January 24th, 2015

Sunlark Research is looking for independent court researchers.

Sunlark Research is a public records researching firm providing fresh field data directly to businesses.

The court researcher is responsible for gathering various information from the public records available. The type of research depends on the needs of the client. When you are at the county recorder, registrar of deeds, or bureau of conveyance office (or other name, depending on your locale), you will meet people who are researching records for much more detailed information than what they usually need. In some areas, they also collect information from court documents, including civil case filings.

In most cases they are looking for very basic information from the documents available, such as names and addresses. The researcher then enters the information into database or spreadsheet software, depending on the needs of the client.

The amount of work available in a given county depends largely on the population base and growth and mobility of the area and on the type of assignments they have available in your area. A very small county (i.e., under 10,000 residents) may have only one hour of work per month while a very large county (i.e., over 1 million population) can sometimes keep a fast-working researcher busy for 30-40 hours per week and could even need to be done by a team.
